A few months ago, I told you about IHG and Kimpton’s plan to merge their loyalty programs in early 2018.
This was exciting news, because it meant we’d soon be able to earn and redeem IHG points for stays at Kimpton Hotels. And via Million Mile Secrets reader IAD Gr8, you can now book Kimpton Hotels with IHG points!
Use IHG Points for Stays at Kimpton Hotels
This news has been a long time coming!
You’ll find Kimpton hotels in 35 popular cities, like:
- New York
- Washington, DC
I didn’t examine every Kimpton hotel, but from a quick search, it looks like award nights at these hotels might not be the best value. Because the points prices are very high in relation to the cash price.
That said, I definitely appreciate more options for redeeming my miles & points! And some Kimpton hotels look really fun, like the Seafire Resort and Spa in Grand Cayman!
Want More IHG Points?
Link: Chase IHG Card
To earn more IHG points, you can:
- Sign-up for the Chase IHG Credit Card. You’ll get a 60,000 IHG point sign-up bonus and $50 statement credit after completing minimum spending requirements
- Buy IHG points
- Use the IHG Cash & Points Trick to “buy” points for even cheaper
- Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points (I do NOT recommend this, because there are more valuable Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer partners)
You can now use your IHG points for stays at Kimpton hotels! But expect to spend between 40,000 and 70,000 IHG points per night. I’m always grateful for more ways to use miles & points, so this is a welcome development!
